This month Redwood client, leading property consultants and chartered surveyors, Cluttons, hosted a seminar which tackled one of property’s burning issues, the housing crisis.

Cluttons’ residential consultancy division invited around 100 industry professionals and the press to look at the prospects for London’s residential market over the coming year. Some of the Redwood team attended the event, and listened to speakers discuss the demand for residential space in the Capital, particularly looking at London’s professional workers, and the consequences for the development and investment sectors.

The topic of the seminar further reinforced the challenges faced by the residential sector, as lack of funding and suitable land halts development further. It will be interesting to see how the government and planners deal with London’s deficit in housing as demand to live in the capital continues to grow.
